Boy Scouts & Cub Scouts

Saint Mary School has three boy scouting units offering a variety of prgrams for our youth. The Boy Scouts are divided into three levels to offer age appropriate programs that focus on outdoor activities, community service, and mostly having fun.

Chess Club

The Chess Club is run by the Connecticut School of Chess and meets on Friday afternoons. Students grades K to 8 may participate.

13 students from Kindergarten to 8th grade enjoyed some strategic fun in the 2011-2012 Chess Club. Moderated by Coach Tom, the club members competed with one another while honing their focus, practicing to be better thinkers, and visualizing next steps for the best outcome. Girls and boys are encouraged to join the Chess Club during the Fall or Spring session.

Choir

The SMS Chorus is run by Mrs. Karen Lagarde.  They meet every other week for 45 minutes and perform at church & special school functions.  They were recently invited to sing at the Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play playground dedication ceremony.

Drama Club

2015 Drama Club

Every artist has a medium of expression. While the painter has his oils & brushes and the musician his instrument, the actor’s medium is himself! To do well in this art, the actor must have his mind & body working together, coordinated, sensitive and pliable. This is what dramatic training helps develop. The culmination of all the activities involved in this drama program is vital to your overall development as an actor, so absenteeism is strongly discouraged. A few weeks into the program, everyone will audition for and win a part in our theatrical presentation at the end of the school year. Once play rehearsals begin, it is also very important that everyone be at class on time.

St. Mary’s Drama Club begins again on January 11, 2016.  Sign up notices will be distributed in December to all students in grades 5-8. Registration will be on a first come/first serve basis, so mark your calendar to sign up during the first week of January!

Last year’s production of CLUE was fun and memorable for the cast and the audiences. CLUE is a zany murder-mystery based on the classic board game and Hollywood film! Lead roles as the dinner guests/hosts were played by: Clare Bassano, Rory Woods, Claire Koppy, Thomas Griffin, Morgan Bisecco, Lily Bryant and Brenna Connoly.

Last year’s show marked the 20th drama club production under the direction of acting coach, Lisa Lelas, here at St. Mary’s school. Assistant director was her daughter, Lexy Lelas.

Drama club runs from January through May of each year, on Monday afternoons, with two final on-stage productions held on the Monday before Memorial Day. For more information: www.LisaLelas.com or email: LisaLelas@aol.com

Instrumental Music Program

This program, administered throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford by FUTURE MUSICIANS, INC. (FMI), allows students in grades 4-8 the opportunity to receive a group lesson once per week in any of the brass, woodwind or percussion instruments. The scheduling of these lessons is rotated each week so a student never misses the same class more than one time per month.

Students who register become part of either the BEGINNING BAND (which practices once per week during school hours) or ADVANCED BAND (which practices once per week after school). Besides our school bands, the bands of local Catholic schools are often combined and more advanced students are afforded the opportunity to perform with regional and statewide “All Star” bands.

The fee and registration for this program is administered through FMI. Interested parents will be invited to a special informational evening meeting early in the year.
